Ouch

June 16, 2017   /   byMyrna  / Categories :  Feeds
Three hours into the twelve hour job of removing the flooring upstairs, I sprained the middle finger on my right hand - ouch. Continuing with the work wasn't the best choice from a healing point of view but definitely the best choice from a moving along with the renovations one. Progress is being made and it's taking longer than I hoped. One of my contractors failed to tell me he wouldn't be here Thursday or Friday so I failed to arrange for someone else to be. Sigh. That's life.





One of the great things about the Internet is finding images to illustrate what you want. It's so much clearer than trying to describe something. I've always loved a more sophisticated country look, clean not cluttered, and so even though that's trendy now when it's not it'll still be Myrna.





I've been researching how to paint upholstery for the check couch in the living room. I'm done with check but still like the shape and feel of it and it's in excellent condition. I'll practice on a thrift store chair first. Mine will be simple, nothing this complicated, but how fun is that.





When the sprained finger didn't settle down as fast as I thought it should, I went to see my doctor and she said an extra nine hours of work means a longer healing time... and to rest it... hmm. I can write so I'm still able to journal. I haven't been able to wire wrap. Things are a bit too cluttered for sewing. I have managed to figure out how to knit without hurting it too much. Next week, I'm hoping to work on the yard and escape all that's going on in the house although I'll be careful. I have a friend coming to play in the studio the week after and I definitely want to be in shape.

Talk soon - Myrna

Grateful - dishes back in cupboards
